Re: The 1960 - 1966 Chevrolet & GMC Pickups Factory Correct Restoration Thread

Also should mention here that white custom trim trucks only had white between the custom side door and bed trim , you see lots of black and red painted inserts on them but this is NOT factory. Two tone trucks got the main body color painted rims. While one color or solid color trucks received black rims on Chevys.

GMC was completely different. For 1960-1961 There were three colors for the rims ,Crystal Green, Strata Blue and Olympic white , this all had to do with the main body color as to which wheel color you got.For 1962-1966 Im 90% sure GMC rims were white but for some reason I have seen a couple with black rims that I cannot verify. Still need a 1962 and 1966 GMC Data book to confirm some of the GMC facts.
And wasn't the sheen for black wheels satin?
